to stop writing.

I’ve decided that before I get to my homework each day, I will write for about an hour– shooting for around 1000 words. This is not a difficult goal for an hour’s writing for me.

The problem is stopping!

Yesterday, I taught then graded. Then I had homework to do until my class and the other class I teach. So I started writing and just fell into Servant of the King. I wanted to write all day! I churned out 1300 words before I could stop myself.

Today I taught and then had a class to go to. I made it back to my workspace around noon and had lunch. Then I began writing again at around 12:30 or so.

1700 words later I just had to literally yell at myself to quit it. So I finally stopped.

Because I have a pile of homework that ain’t going to do itself!

Anyway, I just thought I’d share. I really love this story and I really like this character and his world. I can’t wait to get the whole thing down.

I’m going to try to have chapter 14 up here tonight. If you are reading this book, I would love to get some comments. Also, feel free to follow and share. I’m a writer; I’m needy.
